Ways to interpret the data

When showing data as percentages, the chart includes gray bars next to each colored bar for comparison. The gray bar represents the percentage of the total population that falls into that demographic category. The colored bar represents the percentage of deaths in that category.

When the gray bar is shorter than the colored bar, it means that the demographic group is dying from COVID-19 at a higher rate than other demographic groups. When the gray bar is longer than the colored bar, the group is dying from COVID-19 at a below-average rate.
